sim card slot is a big fail in all xperia phones (from z, z1, ....xz2)
Look, I love Sony and all...but they should have really just kept the Loop Surface Design (Most people love it) and shrunk the bezels all way around...
I don't give two craps about the 3.5mm headphone jack, its bound to be removed sooner or later...
Anonymous, 31 May 2018Can you tell me about the differences between the camera quality of the XZ and XZ2? Quite curi... moreClearly, everything is better on the XPERIA XZ2, except the 3.5mm headphone jack, and if u don't mind the design, and price, then I think u should get it. Both of them are actually excellent for daylight photos in my opinion (Haters please, don't send shots at me, it is my own opinion, and I mean no hate to brands, except for OPPO because of all their gimmicky gimmicks), they got neck and neck with each other. Sharpness is there for the XPERIA XZ, but for the detail and white balance, the XPERIA XZ2 takes the crown, as expected since I looked at GSMARENA's review first before buying, in daylight photos I wouldn't really mind a little bit of noise of course, it ain't bad at all. For low-light photos the XPERIA XZ appeared soft with a lot of noise and less detail, cranking up both the exposure time and ISO, its kind of a shame given the fact that they got the best camera sensor, but their camera software just can't get it right for low-light photos. One scene selection would help though, it is the Night Scene. I tried comparing 2 low-light photos before, one 23MP taken with Manual Mode with no tweaking, and another 23MP taken with Superior Auto with Night Scene at the same place, and it turns out that the one taken with Superior Auto is better, it cleared out a lot of the noise present as compared to the one taken with Manual Mode. But, this is only due to one occasion, I didn't move a single bit of my XPERIA XZ (Or u can just say that a equivalent of it aka the tripod is needed), that's why it is hard to do it for most occasions, and the reason why I decided to use Manual Mode for low-light. But for my XPERIA XZ2, I am impressed because of how much it improved. The photos look sharper, with toned-down noise, and more detail. When I zoomed into the photos I noticed the objects have more sharpness and detail, with more noise, it seems like over here the camera is much more aggressive to noise, but if it helps in sharpness and detail, I'll take it any day over the one that is like the XPERIA XZ. Of course, there are better low-light performers out there, but if u don't care that much, then the XPERIA XZ2 can satisfy u with your use
Sony let me down again this year, 4GB of RAM in Cambodia. What a let down, I'm a long run user of flagship, I upgrade my phone every 2 or 3 years so in Android eco system 4GB isn't enough for heavy user like me.
This phone is more than twice as thick as my Motorola Z. It looks like a cheap HTC U11 knockoff. It is bulbous and won't sit flat on a table. Xiaomi introduced the Mi 8 Explorer yesterday. That phone screams sex.

Pretty much all the android phone has this feature. It's part of google's smart lock. It will always be in every android phone unless google or the phone manufacturer decides to remove it.
Yes, the fingerprint scanner is not not a very ideal location but it's a matter of adapting. Sooner or later, you will get used to it. My only complaint is that the scanner is prone to scratches. Well, most phones have fingerprint scanners that can be easily scratched.

Quite curious since only the XZ2 line up is the only great cameras from Xperia for me. But since, I don't have both the XZ and XZ2, I need your opinion as a first hand user of both devices so that I can make up my mind whether which phone I am gonna purchase next.
This phone is a real deal. So people should stop talking trash about it. Only real problem this phone has is a current price. It's not 800 euros like it says, its about 700 but that is still quite high. Phones today became nothing more than status symbols and that's why i believe that paying over 500 for any model of any brand is simply a waste of hard earned cash.
But i can't tell people what to buy for their own money. That is simply my opinion.
All the nagging if you want the phone buy it if you dont like it dont bad mouth about it.
It's a matter of time in getting used to the placement of the fingerprint sensor. I used to place my finger on the cam but after a while, i got used to it and nvr hit the cam lenses.
If ur having problems finding the fingerprint placement without looking at the back, just look at the power button. The placement is at the same level as the power button but on the back.

Because every time when I try to unlock my XPERIA XZ2, most of the time my index finger would naturally rest on the camera instead of the fingerprint sensor, and besides for me I always want my smartphones to be free from fingerprint smudges, so it is kind of annoying for me. Another nuisance is that, since I knew this would most likely happen the very next time I unlock my XPERIA XZ2, I have to turn it around and place my index finger on the fingerprint sensor instead of looking at the display or without looking at the display and unlock it naturally like my daily driver XPERIA XZ
kerul, 24 May 2018Hey did you check apps you have installed? Many apps like Truecaller or ES file explorer or so... moreHey Kerul! Thanks for your comment.
Yesterday I forgot my phone at home and when I got back from work almost 12 hours later, battery was at 87% so nothing drained my battery. I think I must "over-use"it or something like that in order to deplete my batt. Still thanks for your comment!
